I call this finish: Guardian Angel

I collected these charms during another Kate Spain swap sponsored by Michelle of Crayon Box Studio. It makes for the perfect lap size quilt measuring 37" x 51". It was a quick finish this week and another one I can check off my Winter Sewing list.

So, with it's pantograph of Angels throughout...

...and soft minky backing...

Jackson and I will use it to cuddle up under as we settle down to watch TV each winter evening.

 For, no matter the conditions. or how long the walk, he is ethusiastically at my side...my loyal companion.  I got him as my empty nest puppy and my buddy he has been ever since. 

I know many of you have studio pets too and feel the same way about them as I do him.
Sometimes we rescue them, but more times than not, it has been my experience that they actually end up rescuing us don't they. I count my blessings for the Guardian Angel I have in Jackson...and remind myself of this often especially when he acts all Jack Russell crazy!
PS: You do know all dogs go to heaven right! Just checking.

  11. Isn't patchwork great? It made a bright and pretty quilt. It just shouts of warm and cozy. However, those photos are. amazing. The snow really enhances the colors. Great, great way to show a quilt. Best pics of the year!

  13. I have a little Jackson too Val and understand exactly how you feel about your guardian angel. And yes, they more often rescue us and not the other way around, LOL.

    This is such a pretty and cozy and cheerful quilt! I am glad you are keeping it for cuddling time. It made me laugh that you photographed it laying in the middle of the road... but that is actually a a very fun shot.

  17. Jackson is going to really enjoy your pretty Kate Spain quilt after walking in that snow and ice. Aren't empty nest pets just the best? My little Cotton (a Maltese) has kept me company and sane for 14 years. So, yes, they do end up rescuing us. Have a great new year!
